I want more information on this property
Welcome to Arizona's Painted Desert. This beautiful piece of the American Southwest, just off Route 66, features excellent panoramic views and an abundance of privacy. If you like to get outdoors, come camp on land you own free from neighbors and other campers. If you’re planning to build a home, this parcel is a great low-cost option to get started! With few restrictions and no timeline to build, you have the freedom to use the land on your terms.
Downtown Holbrook AZ, a town of about 5000 people, is only 13 miles away. The Holbrook area was inhabited first by the Anasazi, then Puebloans, then the Navajo and Apache. In 1540, Coronado searched for the Seven Cities of Cibola and camped some sixty miles east of Holbrook. Coronado sent an expedition west to find the Colorado River, and they crossed the Little Colorado about twenty-five miles east of Holbrook and found a wonderland of colors they named "El Desierto Pintada" - The Painted Desert.
The Petrified Forest National Park is just east of this parcel and features some excellent hiking. There are numerous popular trails including the Blue Mesa Trail, Painted Desert Rim Trail, Devil’s Playground Loop, and many others. If you’d like to drive a little further, the Grand Canyon is only 3 hours to the northwest, the iconic Oljato-Monument Valley is about 3 hours north, and the Homolovi Ruins are just an hour west.
This lot is located 15 minutes off exit 294 on Route 66. Roads are mostly dirt once you get away from the freeway, but they’re moderately traveled, so you shouldn’t have much trouble getting to the property. Power is near the freeway exit, but hasn’t been extended out to these private parcels yet. Solar power is a great option since there is no shortage of sunny days. Wind power could be viable as well.
I’ve included map pictures as well as stock photos of the nearby Petrified Forest National Park.
